Only 34 days to go until we travel to Walt Disney World. It is creeping closer and closer. Yay!
Here are the 10 things I am the most excited about for our trip to Walt Disney World in October:
#10 Riding it’s a small world. It is my favorite ride!!
#9 Celebrating our unbirthdays with “the dip” (see below) and birthday cupcakes. Woo hoo! Happy unbirthday to us!
#8 Exploring EPCOT’s Food and Wine Festival. Looking forward to tempting tidbits of tasty treats.
#7 Experiencing Minnie’s Seasonal Dining at Hollywood and Vine, Halloween Edition for the first time ever. I mean, Minnie, Mickey, Goofy, Donald and Daisy in their Halloween costumes! Plus the food looks yummy.
#6 Spending the better part of a day at Disney Springs exploring and shopping.
#5 Eating at Olivia’s Café at Disney’s Old Key West Resort. This is by far my favorite restaurant at Walt Disney World.
#4 Experiencing Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween.
#3 Spending plenty of resort time and pool time at Disney’s Old Key West Resort. It is, seriously, my Happy Place. When I’m chilling at Old Key West I can actually feel all stress leaving my body. It is the ultimate in relaxation for me.
#2 Meeting and greeting Mickey at Magic Kingdom. I am so ready to shake Mickey‘s big, white-gloved hand and get a picture with him and my family.
And the #1 thing that I am excited about…Looking at the faces of my husband and children and their spouses and children and spending some quality time together in this beautiful place. This will be a family reunion extraordinaire!
Meet you at the Kingdom.
*The dip: In a pie plate spread 8 oz. of cream cheese. Next sprinkle 6 to 8 cut-up green onions on top. Then spread a can of No Bean chili on top. (We usually make a second dip with Vegetarian chili with lots of beans.) Finally sprinkle 8 oz. of grated cheddar cheese on top. (We prefer sharp cheddar. The shaper the better.) Microwave for five minutes and serve with your favorite chips. (We usually heat it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes instead, because it seem to hold it’s heat longer.)
